Ribbon Communications announced that its Session Border Controller Software Edition (SBC SWe), Insight Element Management System (EMS) and Centralized Policy and Routing Software Edition (PSX SWe) are certified on Red Hat OpenStack® Platform 10.

Ribbon’s relationship with Red Hat includes membership in the Red Hat Connect for Technology Partners and Red Hat Connect for Business Partners programs.

These advanced solutions are Ribbon’s most recent Red Hat-certified Virtual Network Functions, joining its C3 Call Session Controller VNF, Advanced Media Software (AMS) VNF for media interworking & transcoding applications and Converged Intelligent Messaging (CIM) VNF for voicemail and messaging applications.

Additionally, Ribbon’s VNF Manager enables lifecycle management of Ribbon and third party VNFs and has been certified for Red Hat OpenStack Platform virtualized infrastructure manager.

Red Hat’s NFV solution is based on fully open source components; its OpenStack Platform 10 also supports DPDK Accelerated Open V-Switch (OVS) and SR-IOV for high performance media processing.

Kevin Riley, EVP, CTO and Advanced R&D, Ribbon
Strong ecosystem collaboration matters for NFV deployments and we’re pleased to partner with Red Hat in this area. We have already deployed our SBC SWe as a Virtual Network Function (VNF) running on Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10 in a Tier 1 North American service provider and are actively working with other providers.

Radhesh Balakrishnan, GM, OpenStack, Red Hat
NFV adoption and migration to the telco cloud are critical to the advancement and success of the industry as whole, and a strong ecosystem delivering robust, interoperable solutions is a major facilitator.
